There was a time when he'd smile and she wouldn't :)

Hi everyone!!

Hope you all had a great National Scrapbooking Day!! I made some cards, finished up some Mother's Day gifts for my Mom and Mother-in-Law (we are celebrating tomorrow because Brian is out of town on the actual Mother's Day), and made two layouts for some recent challenges :)

For my first layout - I made it for the latest Color Me Scrappy challenge :) 

I used Bo Bunny's Little Miss Collection :) 





This is little Adam and little Brookie ... and about my title :)  Well, if you have been following me for awhile, you KNOW that Brookie is a camera DIVA!! Always hamming it up for the camera -- well these photos prove -- that at one time, Adam did all the smiling, while Brookie would just stare stone-faced at the camera! LOL :)





Here is Color Me Scrappy's color scheme and sketch for their challenge :)






And I also played along with Bo Bunny's May challenge -- which is to use a Book Title for your layout title :)

I used Bo Bunny's Camp-A-Lot Collection on my layout :)





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
